Okay, So I’ll admit, I’ve been bad about blogging for, oh, about a year. So I’m in no position to start bossing other (and much more skilled) bloggers around.

But this one is crying out for a Caption This!

New Jersey’s Big Fat Governor Shows How It’s Done

Welcome Instapundit Readers!!

In an editorial today (via Instapundit), the editors of the New York Post lavish praise on the Garden State’s Republican Governor for “doing what he was elected to do — getting the budget under control, without reflexively raising taxes.”  In so doing, he becomes a model for chief executives of other states (and one federal government) in similar fiscal straits.

Chris Christie is making cuts across the board and “has let it be known that he’ll stick to his campaign promises and oppose any gas-tax hike.”  Good for him, the problem is not that governments have been taking in too little money, but that they have been spending too much.

Given the squeals of protests for Democrats and special interest groups, it’s important that folks who understand that governments, like homeowners, must live within their means, stand up and defend this good man.  Perhaps, Tea Party activists in New Jersey could rally on behalf on the aggressive executive, with signs, saying, “We’re with you, Chris,” “We support your plans to hold the line on spending,” or some such.

For now, I’ll just repeat praise from a prior post, Kudos, Governor.  I’m proud to call myself a member of your party.  And commend you for standing strong against special interests and for fiscal discipline.

Condolences to the Nation of Georgia

It was heartbreaking to watch the Georgian athletes walk into the Olympic Stadium.  Every other nation was cheering, jumping up and down and soaking in the excitement.  But the Georgians were in mourning for the loss of their comrade-in-sports, Nodar Kumaritashvili, who died yesterday morning in a training run on the luge course.

I just wanted to take a moment to express my sorrow to all those who knew Nodar and his family.  And condolences to all those Olympians who were struck by the tragedy yesterday.

It is sad that the World had to come together last night under a cloud of darkness, but I was cheered by how brave the Georgian delegation was as they strode into the stadium with 60,000 people encouraging them to continue on with their dreams.
